Haute Savoie Holidays

Even non-skiers are familiar with the name of Chamonix in the department of Haute-Savoie, the famous winter sports resort and site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Nearby, close to the Italian border, looms the highest mountain in Europe - Mont Blanc - at 4,800m. Discover its history at Musee Alpin in Chamonix. This wonderland of dazzling snowfields in the French Alps is home to other important resorts such as Avoriaz and Megeve known as the "St Tropez of the Alps".
